Course Dinner, Lunch
Cuisine American
Servings 2 servings


  • 1 can of Chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup + 1 Tablespoon Vegan Mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 1/4 cup Celery thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp Green Onion
  • 3/4-1 tsp Pink Himalayan Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • -1 Large sheet of Seaweed or 6 small snack seaweed sheets crumbled or broken up in a food processor


  • -Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  • -In a food processor or bullet sized blender, blend the chickpeas and seaweed sheets so it becomes a mixture you’d be able to sprinkle not spread, almost like a powder. Not all the pieces will beak apart and some will get stuck, don’t worry it doesn’t have to be perfect, just get it to smaller sized pieces.
  • -Mix in all of the other ingredients except the onion and celery and pulse a few times to get the mixture to combine.
  • -Serve right away, or for best flavor, make a day or two in advance, day 2 is even better.
  • -If you’re making a tuna melt, use your bread and vegan cheese of choice, place the chickpea salad mixture on one of the bread slices, place cheese on top, place both pieces in the oven and broil for about 3-6 minutes. Just watch to your desired melty toasty-ness.
  • -Enjoy!!
